    @Ian Holloway

    You are SO on the money with that film.

    I saw it once when i was at Uni in the 90´s with a very crappy VHS copy. And i never thought about it again till the lovely people at coilhouse mentioned it several months ago. Well done

    I didn't see it mentioned here, so I'll add Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter to the mix, just in case anyone's missed it. The title says it all, really.

    Mr Majestyk. Starring Charles Bronson. Playing a melon farmer in N. Cali. Repeatedly says the line "Look, I just wanna pick my melons." And y'know, he's Charles Bronson so you KNOW he's got melons.

    Derek Jarman's "The Angelic Conversation"

    Stark, sad and gorgeous. Lacks any real plot but still communicates a "story" in its own way. Really more like a dream then a film.

    Clip below is from the end of the movie. No spoilers though. Hard to spoil the plot when there is not one.

    Since no-one seems to have mentioned it thus far, La Antena, a German Expressionist film about a city that gives up its voice, which was actually made in Argentina in 2007.

    And Nothing Lasts Forever, also black-and-white, from 1984, written and directed by a former SNL writer, with Bill Murray as the driver of a bus that transports the elderly to the moon.

    Mr Svankmajer's take on Faust

    Ok, so maybe the assembled throng here is a little more likely to have seen this one. It's worth watching though, and weirdly may be best dubbed into English - gasp! The English dub that I saw had Andrew Sachs providing all the voices, and it was very wrong indeed.

    If you don't know Mr. S and his jolly and sunny works, it might worth visiting youtube...

    Goodies from the international film festival circuit:

    First,

    Bodyguards And Assassins.

    Next, The Invention Of Dr. Nakamats.

    From Vietnam, there's Clash. Not as good, but can't argue with the punchy.

    "Mother" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1216496/) By the guy who wrote and directed "The Host."

    Out now, if you can find it.

    Primer

    I figure it's WC, so a lot of you have probably seen Primer.

    Some of the best $7k the industry has spent. I can't get enough of this movie.

    Has someone already mentioned Catherine Breillat's "À ma soeur!"? Brilliant.

    "The Exploding Girl" is a nicely subtle character study with Zoe Kazan playing the titular college student on summer break with a best friend who might/might not become something more. Beautiful images, wonderful performances.

    Hello everyone,

    Sorry not had a chance to read all that has gone before so apologies for any duplication.

    Matewan by John Sayles is amazing.

    Silent Running with Bruce Dern is brilliant

    The beguiled with Clint Eastwood - not standard Clint fare.

    Couple of good French movies

    La Vielle dame qui marchait dans la mer (the old lady who walked in the sea with Jeanne Moreau)

    Ridicule ( french period piece)

    I really liked these and hope you do too.

    I am looking forward to seeing what has gone before.

    @Timbo
    I agree...liked Matewan and Ridicule. Also, fans of Will Oldham should see Matewan to see him as a young lad preaching hellfire and what not.
